FLORENCE - The Northampton Soccer Club ended its season Saturday with a slate of Roots Soccer League matches at the Florence Recreation Fields. Starting at 9 a.m., a brilliant sun quickly lifted temperatures through the freezing mark for a pair of games as the U11 girls welcomed Agawam and the U9 boys took on Easthampton, both pictured here. Throughout the day Northampton also hosted teams from Frontier, Granby, Longmeadow and Wilbraham.
